We’re excited to announce today that we’ve added Reserved Database Instances (Reserved DB Instances) for Amazon RDS. With Reserved DB Instances, you can now make a one-time, up-front payment to create a one or three year reservation to run your DB Instance in a specific Region and receive a significant discount off of the ongoing hourly usage charge. Your DB Instances will work just as they do today, but can lower your costs over the life of your database. For more information on Reserved DB Instances, visit the Amazon RDS detail page.
